Painted Rocks & Seashells
We love painting rocks, and finding painted rocks around our community. In addition to painting happy rocks to plant in the community for others to find, we also like using them in our own flower beds to enjoy as a family. The kids especially like animal painted rocks. It’s a fun way for them to express their creativity, and if you stick to a theme, such as sea creatures, you’d even be able to use them in an aquarium!
Since we live less than an hour from the beach, and I don’t like swimming in the cold Atlantic Ocean, I like to walk up and down the beach looking for sea shells. I use them as decorations in a variety of ways, and during my last visit to a craft fair, I was inspired to paint some of the seashells. It’s so fun to turn painted seashells into sea creatures and other animals. These can serve as stand-alone crafts, aquarium crafts, as borders on picture frames, Christmas Ornaments, and make really cute gifts.
What sea creature would YOU love to paint onto a rock or sea shell?
